Hi guys, took me a while to find this again, but here it is.

One last point. A number of specific names are Latinized proper names (e.g., darlingi). Here pronunciation gets tricky, for the question arises of whether names of non-English origin (e.g., steindachneri) should be Anglicized. For the most part, I'll do so - more or less. Hence, STYN-dahk-nuh-ree (not SHTYN-).
Phonetic Key (primary stress = capitals)
a = a of "bay"
ah = a of "bar"
au = ou of "bout"
aw = au of "bought"
aa = a of "bat"
e = e of "bet"
ee = ee of "bee"
y = i of "by"
i = i of "bit"
o = o of "go"
oy = oy of "boy"
oo = oo of "shoo"
u = u of "bull"
uh = u of "but"
ch = ch of "chug"
g = g of "bug"
ng = ng of "long"
j = j of "jug"
sh = sh of "shrug"
th = th of "thing"
dh = th of "then"
y+vowel = y of "you"
